In 2018 there were 1187 drug related deaths (DRDs) in Scotland, 27% more than in 2017, and the largest number of DRDs since records began in 1996. Opioids such as heroin, morphine and methadone were implicated or potentially contributed to 792 of these deaths (57%)1. Opioid overdose deaths are preventable through timely administration of naloxone, which reverses the cardiovascular and respiratory depression associated with these deaths2.Our collaborative study between Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), University of Stirling (UoS) and Scottish Drugs Forum (SDF) will evaluate and explore the impact of the NPTSP for peer workers and the broader community
